Liberals are getting so sick of Elon Musk, they literally can't stand being anywhere near him. It's a stark change from heralding Musk as their hero just years ago, isn't it?
This is now why the snowflakes on Saturday Night Live are being offered a "safe space" by their show and "won’t be forced to appear alongside controversial billionaire Elon Musk when he hosts the show", according to the New York Post.
One source told the NY Post: “Speaking historically, if a cast member has been that unhappy, they don’t have to do it. [‘SNL’ boss Lorne Michaels] won’t ever make them do anything they don’t want to do.”
Things already look like they're kicking off well with Musk and the cast. When Musk tweeted days ago "Let's find out just how live Saturday Night Live really is", cast member Bowen Yang fired back on Instagram: “What the fuck does this even mean?”
“Only CEO I want to do a sketch with is Cher-E Oteri,” wrote writer Andrew Dismukes. Cast member Aidy Bryant reposted a Tweet by Bernie Sanders that called it a “moral obscenity” that “the 50 wealthiest people in America today own more wealth than the bottom half of our people.”
Musk, as a reminder, saw his net worth rise by over $100 billion in 2020 while Tesla stock mooned for reasons that, we would guess, have yet to fully be explained.
NBC announced Musk would be hosting last weekend. It made the announcement "just hours" after the SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule docked with the International Space Station.
As we noted last week, the show isn't well known for having businesspeople host, but Musk's crossover into the realm of celebrity appears to have afforded him the opportunity. Musk has also made guest appearances on CBS shows Young Sheldon and The Big Bang Theory, as well as voicing a part on South Park, The Simpsons and Rick and Morty.
For better or for worse, it's going to get eyeballs on the show, which is NBC's endgame. The news at the time also triggered the lot of liberal SNL viewers, who lashed out at the program on Twitter, which became a group "cancel" effort/therapy session for snowflakes:
